"QUAND J'ECOUTE DU NIGHTCORE CA ME DONNE ENVIE DE FAIRE DES SURSYNTEXTES VOCAUX DE LA POESIE EN ACCELERE QUI CHANGE TOUT LE TEMPS DE RYTHME ET D'IDEE." (M. Richards)
Genre that originated from trance and/or techno, and eventually got a life on its own.
Pure Nightcore: VERY fast beats (sometimes so extremely fast, that you cannot count them), and very high pitch (almost chipmunks). Song usually lasts about 2 to 3 minutes. Often described as "cute".
Example: Kiss me by Schule321
Bass Nightcore: fast beats, the main melody (and voice) are pitched up, but there's very low bass added; so the contrast between very high and very low is created.
Example: Kiss me by GrizzNightcore
Trance Nightcore: fast beats, high pitch, but less signing and more melody; filled with repetition; very often there is only one verse or a sentence that is repeated throughout the song. Usually it lasts at least 5 minutes, often more.
